Event Details

The last several years of crisis, global disruption, and unprecedented opportunity have brought renewed attention to how our organizations can better support our team members. The call to help our colleagues continue to work effectively, sustainably, and more humanely has placed new urgency on how our organizational cultures align (or fail to align) with our values. In this session, “people and culture” and HR professionals from a range of grantmakers will engage participants in frank discussions of practices and policies adopted during this time of heightened crisis. How are we taking care of our people during the pandemic? What experiments do we want to make permanent, and how does all this “internal” work relate to our foundations’ missions? While human resources staff and those with organizational culture responsibilities hold much of this work, during the pandemic, we all realized we all have something to contribute. Staff who are interested in advocating for change within their foundations–with formal human resources job duties or not–are especially encouraged to attend.
